About: Seminars & Special Events

Each year, MSDA aims to provide at least one standalone seminar, and we use this to offer some specialized instruction, or to introduce dogs and handlers to a sport that’s not within the usual “sporting dog” realm, or just to try out something new. In previous years, these events have included:

  • 2018 AKC Spaniel Hunt Test Judging Seminar taught by AKC Field Rep Tom Meyer
  • 2019 Conformation and Obedience & Rally Stewarding Seminar
  • 2020 Field Training Basics: A Weekend Workshop
  • 2021 Westminster (Virtual) Watch Party
  • 2021 Upland Dog Fundamentals Workshop led by professional trainer Jordan Horak
  • 2021 AKC Spaniel Hunt Test Judging Seminar taught by AKC Field Rep Tom Meyer
  • 2022 Barn Hunt Seminar & Try-It
  • 2023 Dock Diving Seminar & Try-It
  • June 2024 Seminar: Retrieving for Upland Dogs led by professional trainer Mitch White
  • September 2024 AKC Spaniel Hunt Test Judging Seminar taught by AKC Field Rep Tom Meyer – Information coming this summer

Information about seminars and other special events are announced on this website, in our newsletter, and on our private Facebook group.
